How unfortunate. I guess it never occurred to them to BUILD MORE MEDICAL SCHOOLS. Of course, simple supply and demand starts sounding a bit like capitalism and we certainly can't have that ... Yes, pretty snarky but you really have to wonder how long it's going to take b4 folks figure out these "solutions" are simply unsustainable - it's just nuts what's being done instead of effective SOLUTIONS.
